Prairie Points Quilt Guild Celebrates 20 Years
From The Chronicle (Centralia):
The Prairie Points Quilt Guild in Rainier celebrated its 20th anniversary back in January.
The program has served Rainier and surrounding communities by providing quilts to those in need since January of 2002.
In March, the group celebrated three of its current members, who have been with the guild since its creation. They presented Majorie Capluto, Kay Ervin and club president Sue Larson with commemorative quilts as a thank you for volunteering for over two decades.
The group has undertaken many projects in its 20-year stint, including sewing quilts for homeless kids in the area.
“We’ve done 130 quilts for homeless kids in the Yelm and Rainier school districts,’ said member Tammie Meyers. ‘Three to five years ago one of our members saw a count of homeless people in Yelm and I couldn’t believe it.'”
“The group also meets on the fourth Saturday of each month for their Saturday Sew event, which is also located at the Rainier Senior Center.
“Those interested in joining can contact Meyers at 360-584-7582 for more information. People are also welcome to attend one of the group’s Thursday night meetings to learn more about the program.”
